Hugh is in Pakistan.
The postponed Pakistan elections are a week away, on February 18th. We're expecting his first report on Thursday - meanwhile, he's sent these snaps from Karachi:
"Pakistan has a poor press. But there are many other sides to this confusing country, as I hope these pictures show:
1: The first building you see when you emerge from Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.
2: Freshly squeezed orange juice from fruit carts like these in the city centre. 25 Rupees a glass (about 20p). Delicious.
3: Fancy boutique in Zamzama, a district of Karachi full of cafes and upmarket shops.
4: Hot nuts for sale, also in Zamzama - where the stores are smart but the streets are dusty and broken.
5: Forum shopping mall, Karachi.
6: Eagles soar in huge numbers, almost all the time here.
7: Holy Trinity cathedral.
8: I couldn't resist this. "
